Many auto recalls involve vehicles that are, oftentimes, popular across the United States. In many of these cases, these recalls are serious because they involve issues that could cause injury or deadly accidents.
The latest two auto recalls that we should not ignore come from Nissan and Honda.
According to Nissan, about 25,000 units of the 2015 through 2017 Nissan Leaf vehicles, the all electric cars, as well as the 2014 through 2017 Sentra sedans come with air bag inflators that may have been produced with a manufacturing issue. If that’s the case, the air bags may not deploy correctly in the event of a collision.
Dealers will have the front passenger air bag inflators replaced entirely for free in order to repair this problem. But consumers will only be contacted on June 11 about this recall.
The second recall campaign consumers should not ignore comes from Honda. According to the company, the 2015 Acura TLX vehicles come with transmission wire harness connections that may have been produced with insufficient crimps. If that’s the case, the transmission may, unexpectedly, shift into neutral while the vehicle is in use. If that’s the case and the driver is unable to have this issue addressed promptly, there might be a risk of a rollaway accident.
Honda has announced that in order to ensure this issue is addressed, consumers should reach out to dealers to have the problem solved entirely for free.
Whether you have a Nissan or a Honda vehicle that has been impacted by a recall, act accordingly in order to have it repaired as soon as possible. Ignoring recalls may lead to serious, potentially deadly accidents.
